How do you know you’re buying into quality knitwear? Feel it; is it soft yet substantial? Does it resist creasing reasonably well? What does the manufacturer say about the sources of their raw materials? Look at the colours, designs and the quality of construction. Finally, don’t be put off by price alone. Truly high quality knitwear is a lifetime investment if properly looked after.
I write this as someone who has owned Johnstons of Elgin cashmere knitwear for some years. Every piece has remained as wearable as the day it arrived. A classic object, whether a book, building or piece of art, remains stylish and beautiful despite the ravages of time. This applies equally to clothing and the Johnstons of Elgin Timeless Classics illustrate this perfectly. Such timeless knitwear transcends fashion and personifies the best of style, looking good on anyone, of any age.
